410 Bridge

Haiti Bound

Destruction.

So, before I got the internship for BigStuf this summer, I knew that we were not going to Kenya…I was a little bummed. But, I knew that God had placed the opportunity to do the summer camps a second time. Why would I turn it down? Like I have said in previous blogs, God is really pushing me to trust Him. I don’t know why I have had such a hard time doing that. Maybe because I feel like there were many opportunities in the past for me to take control, fix things, or help out with and no one would trust me or give me a chance to show what I can do. To be quite frank, that has been a struggle for me for the past few years… people trusting in the youth. The youth are rising generation that will soon take the place of today’s adults. Why not trust them, give them opportunity, allow them to see their strengths and weaknesses. But…that is a whole other blog post…

So I decided to trust God and go with the camp internship again. Not going to Kenya provided a new and challenging experience. If we were going to promote 410 and Compassion this summer, my experiences in Kenya would prove vital to helping students and adults understand the dire need of the Kenyans. But BigStuf was moving away from Compassion and towards promoting 410 Bridge and their child sponsorship program called BrightPoint. So there was a lot of new things I would experience this summer. Before they took their interns to Kenya and Tanzania, they did a Mystery Tour where the interns would spend a day serving, learning, having fun and each night would travel to a new location… so this was where I think our summer pre-camp experience was heading… then Haiti suddenly flooded our lives.
